Bushido: The Soul of Japan


Publication date 2009-12-23
LibriVox recording of Bushido: The Soul of Japan, by Inazo Nitobe. Read by Availle.

Bushido: The Soul of Japan written by Inazo Nitobe was one of the first books on samurai ethics that was originally written in English for a Western audience, and has been subsequently translated into many other languages (also Japanese). Nitobe found in Bushido, the Way of the Warrior, the sources of the virtues most admired by his people: rectitude, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, loyalty and self-control, and he uses his deep knowledge of Western culture to draw comparisons with Medieval Chivalry, Philosophy, and Christianity. (Summary by Availle)

Subject: Interesting and well-read
It's a bit prettied up, much I suppose in the same ways as books of chivalrous manners are prettied up version of what real knights did, but its still and intriguing book, and the reading is good.
